The Red Sox continue to bludgeon my heart with a rusty crowbar, but I won't abandon them. I've been through worse times with late 90's Spider-Man titles. I can handle this nonsense. Thankfully the Sea Dogs have been faring well, so I can relax a little bit.
As for comics, I've had a hard time deciding what my favorite book was. It's come down to Carnage #4 and Uncanny X-Force #7, and I think I'm just going to call it a tie. Both were gorgeous, well written, and left me insanely satisfied. You should be reading both of these titles, if you're not already.
Flash #10 was the big issue before Flashpoint begins, but I was a little underwhelmed by it. I'm not too sure what to think about Flashpoint period. I know it's supposed to be a big event, but it doesn't feel like it. That's me anyways, I'm sure there are some Flash fans excited about it. I just have a very wait-and-see attitude about the story.
Spidey was fun this week. I especially enjoyed Sue Storm imprisoning a mime in an actual invisible box. I didn't care for the opening scene with the new costume though. There's no need to re-write a scene that already occurred, and was written better, in FF #1.
Other books that were cool are Daken, Batman and Robin, and Birds of Prey. Each provided me with copious amounts of joy.
Also, what's happening in Age of X is enough to give me a panic attack. It's insane!
I also managed to get 27,555,000 on the new pinball machine here, Scared Stiff. Deal with that!
Until next time everyone!
